Front End Problem!!!

About two weeks ago my truck which is a 2002 F-250 7.3 powerstroke crew cab 4x4 would being to shake a lot when I come to a stop. This occurs from about 15 mph and down. It doesnt occur when I hit the brakes. I tested it out going down a slight hill in neutral and not hitting the brakes. My front end just shakes and it is frustrating. I took it in to a shop and they replaced the right front ball joint since it was bad and they were suppose to fix the front left as well but couldn't get it apart. They said the left front was still good so it shouldnt be a problem. I then thought it was an alignment problem which some of my other friends thought who have a lot of knowledge on trucks and cars. I needed new tires and figured I would get both things taken care of at the same time. So on Saturday I get my new tires and alignment and my truck still shakes like it did before. I even had my mechanic check the alignment again and all was well. They couldn't give me a clue as to what the problem was. I asked my girlfriends uncle what could be wrong and he seems to think it could be a tie rod. Any input you all could give me would be helpful since I can't keep putting my truck in the shop since it is my daily vehicle. Thanks in advance!!!

if it is the tie rod then wouldnt the garage that put my new tires on and did the alignment have been able to know that it could be the tie rod instead of just saying we aren't sure and that we can't fix whatever issues i have? i'm taking my truck in tomorrow to get it looked at by a different garage and see what the damage is. by chance, if it is the tie rod does anyone know about how much that will cost to replace?

my dads f-350's front end would shake at low speeds when in a very slight turn no matter if the brakes were applied or not..turned out to be the bearing hub assy. was going bad
just my 2 cents--Frank
